When I left to come to Korea I thought there would be video games all over the place.
To my horror PC gaming is King! ("windows XP NoOo!!" says the mac)
My Mac and Nintendo feel scared.

I was wondering if anyone could recomend a good online store that ships to korea. I am in bad need of some "Brain Age" for my DS!

I know of Play-Asia and Lik-Sang, but they are kinda pricey.

Any advice?

If you get to Yongsan station, exit the building heading towards digital space 9. Turn right, cross a long covered walking bridge and exit that building, you will see a parking lot. If you cross that and keep to the left side of the road, you will come to a bunch of small alley ways. One goes down a flight of stairs, there are tons of game booths there for PC etc. You can also cross the street and into another basement, tons of PC stuff there

You can get DS games in the I-Mall at Yongsan, but I wouldn't reccomend it. I bought Meteos and the game was all in Japanese. Not a big deal for a game like that, but Animal Crossing would be a nightmare.

Your best bet would be to get a friend to send over stuff, or like elric said, check out ebay.

Are you using the wifi connection with your DS? My dongle is on route - am very excited about kicking some 'real' butt in Mario Kart! Smile

Thank you for the advice!
I can't wait till I get paided so I can take a road trip to yongsan.
It sounds magical.

Also, I don't have wifi yet but when I save up and get a new mac I'm getting and Airport!! Then the mariokart will be zooming along!

Also Also, does anyone know any games stores in Daejeon?
